Dear Parents

Cambridge Psychology Summer School Summary:

The Immerse Psychology Summer School explores some of the most fascinating topics in this complex and multidisciplinary field. Psychologists explore intriguing questions such as: what makes you you? What makes you different from others? What are the nuances between good and evil? The Psychology Summer School provides an incredible forum to study, discuss and debate these alongside a wide range of issues, through a curriculum designed and taught by expert tutors from world-leading universities.

The programme will explore the most fundamental psychological concepts, and introduce key influential theorists – which is great preparation for further study. All participants are encouraged to critically engage with the material, to discuss and to debate with motivated peers from around the world, and in the process gain an insight into advanced study level of the field. Participants will be encouraged to adopt problem based learning to see how insights from research are applied to real world issues. The academic sessions will combine varied activities, discussions as well as interactive sessions. The study of the mind is one of the most exciting areas of medical science, and this Psychology summer school will provide valuable insight into this field of study. This programme is recommended for students considering undergraduate study in Psychology and related subjects.

Her single mother cannot in any means afford to pay for her life save surgery. She live at Kotobabi, her mummy is unemployed and she stay with her grandparents.
